List of Computer Science and Programming Cookbooks

Here's a list of technology books- all related to computing. These are purely cookbooks, whose content is generally structured in the form of 'recipes'. For example, a recipe in an O'reilly book would have a problem statement, the solution and then a discussion. A book from PackT publishers would have headings like "How to do it", "How it works", "There's more", "See also", etc.

Though these books are useful for beginners, they are meant for fairly experienced users or developers who want to achieve specific tasks. I have linked each book to its Amazon.com page so that you can check out some reviews or read sample chapters. As much as possible, I have listed books that have a rating of 4+ stars on Amazon (assuming at least 90% of the reviews are genuine). Hope you enjoy it.
